    Thanks autocorrect

    Whats the most embarrasing text you've sent thanks to auto-correct or a similar feature? This morning I was going to be a few minutes late for work so I texted my boss( who's a 50+ year old woman):

    "Running late had a porn explosion in my dryer this morning"......

    Re: Thanks autocorrect

    I'm guessing that "dryer" was the word corrected...

    Re: Thanks autocorrect

    haha! Yikes that is an unfortunate one. I have generally caught mine and consequently they aren't memorable cause no one else saw them. That feature is a pain more often then not though I think.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Haha, she was a good sport about it. I really hate the feature, especially combined with swype.

    I'm having trouble figuring out what that even should have said.

    It should have read "Running late had a pen explosion in my dryer this morning"

    Never send a dirty text on accident to your girlfriend's sister, who also, unfortunately, was my roommate.

    How badly did you mangle the spelling of "pen" for it to come out "porn?"

    I could see it....the "O" and "R" are on the way to the "E".

    "porn" should never be a possible autocorrect option. That's not going to do anything good for anyone.
